I injured my left knee 12 years ago thanks to a bad rugby tackle; tearing the tendons and grinding down some of the cartilage (if I remember right). Small, short-term, infrequent pains have occured over the years but nothing that has stopped my playing football and rugby when I was younger (now 26), nor has it really been a concern. For the past 3 years I haven't found time to do sports regularly; my work means I travel a lot but it also keeps me fairly active probably 1/3 of the time (diving of moving boats, swimming, tonnes of walking etc), when I'm not sat behind a desk.
Diet-wise I eat fairly healthily; as healthy as is possible while working in SE Asia, without sacrificing actually liking the food I eat. Additionally I have absolutely no other health problems and have been for a full medical in April this year.
However over the past 2 weeks I'm feeling not just my 'bad' knee all the time but my right knee also, either they ache, or hurt when I walk or I get a short sharp pain in the 'bad' one when I go to sit down.
I am 6ft 5" and accept that taller people commonly have knee problems but I'm wondering how I might be able to improve the health of my knees to the point where I don't have to think about them if I want to play football or my girlfriend asks me try yoga again (collapsed last time; knee pain when squatting).
Does anyone have any advice on supplements I should maybe take, exercises I can do or anything else that may improve the situation?
Thanks in advance,
